Thursday Morning Fly By: One point. Progress?

New, comments

Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers scored late in the game! And took it to overtime! But then they lost. Stunner. Recap! [BSH]

*There's no denying that Vinny Lecavalier and the Flyers would like to part ways. Would Vinny maybe retire prematurely to make that happen? [Broad Street Hockey]

*While we're on the subject of Flyers who left before their contracts were up, Ilya Bryzgalov is back with the Anaheim Ducks on a tryout contract. [SB Nation]

*P.K. Subban told Chris Pronger to "suck it" in his second NHL game. I don't know if I should be mad or pat him on the back. [Deadspin]

*Good news -- Gordie Howe did not, as we all suspected, suffer another stroke on Monday. And he might be released from the hospital soon. Bad news -- he's still not in very good shape. [Detroit Free Press]

*Hilary Knight wants to play in an NHL game. She's awesome, so I say why the hell not? [Rant Sports]

*A certain Bay Area reporter got the impression that the Sharks fourth line was to thank for their win against the Flyers the other night.... [CSN Bay Area]

*...and then he got burned by a good friend. [@NHLFlyera]

*A new study looks at how tax policy affects the movement of NHL free agents. [Forbes] **disclaimer: the study was conducted by a fairly partisan D.C. think tank**

*Adrian Dater, a columnist for the Denver Post who covers covered the Avalanche, has been fired for super creepy online behavior towards women. [Bonk's Mullet] Some people found his mea culpa....odd. [@tramL116]

*Fansided looks at the top five most overpaid NHL players, and not a single Flyer is to be found. Hmmmmmm... [Fansided]

*This is kind of a day late because Kurt didn't put it in the Fly By yesterday (Kurt sucks), but Zemgus Girgensons is killing it in the All Star voting thanks to his Latvian brethren. [USA Today]

As a side note, I hope you all realize how hard it is to throw all these links together. Be nice to your local Hinkle.
